Senator Claims Green Energy Is Causing A ‘National Emergency’ in Australia

Australia is facing a “national emergency” of extremely high power prices due to green energy, according to an Aussie senator.

One Nation Sen. Malcolm Roberts, a former coal miner, claimed 60,000 households in the state of New South Wales needed government help to keep their electricity on due to the expense of green energy. He called for the government to scrap renewable energy targets (RET) scheme.

Eco-Terrorists Admit To Sabotaging Portions Of The Dakota Pipeline During Wild New Conference

Vandalizing the Dakota Access Pipeline using blowtorches.

Two activists with a long-history of engaging in eco-terrorism claimed responsibility Monday for a series of attacks against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) during the multi-billion oil project’s construction phase.

Iowa residents Jessica Reznicek and Ruby Montoya provided a detailed description of their brazen efforts to prevent the $3.8 billion pipeline’s completion during a news conference outside the Iowa Utilities Board’s offices. They were arrested after the conference for using hammers to damage a sign on state property – Montoya and Reznicek were held on $1,000 bond.

Obama’s Science Czar Rails Against Using ‘Red Teams’ To Debate Global Warming

John Holdren, who argued in 1969 (with Paul Ehrlich) that the population bomb would destroy mankind.

President Barack Obama’s chief science adviser compared the Trump administration’s use of “red teams” to debate climate science to a “kangaroo court” meant to “create a sense of continuing uncertainty about the science of climate change.”

“But I suspect that most of the advocates of the scheme are disingenuous, aiming to get hand-picked non-experts from federal agencies to dispute the key findings of mainstream climate science and then assert that the verdict of this kangaroo court has equal standing with the findings of the most competent bodies in the national and international scientific communities,” former President Barack Obama’s science czar John Holdren wrote in a Boston Globe op-ed published Monday.

The totalitarianism of the environmentalists

Late last year, I gave a talk about human progress to an audience of college students in Ottawa, Canada. I went through the usual multitude of indicators – rising life expectancy, literacy and per capita incomes; declining infant mortality, malnutrition and cancer death rates – to show that the world was becoming a much better place for an ever growing share of its population.

It seemed to me that the audience was genuinely delighted to hear some good news for a change. I had won them over to the cause of rational optimism. And then someone in the audience asked about climate change and I blew it.

Why the Greens Lost, and Trump Won

Overreacting? Who us?

When President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accords, embraced coal, and stacked his administration from people from fossil-fuel producing states, the environmental movement reacted with near-apocalyptic fear and fury. They would have been better off beginning to understand precisely why the country has become so indifferent to their cause, as evidenced by the victory not only of Trump but of unsympathetic Republicans at every level of government.

Yet there’s been little soul-searching among green activists and donors, or in the generally pliant media since November about how decades of exaggerated concerns—about peak oil, the “population bomb,” and even, a few decades back, global cooling—and demands for economic, social, and political sacrifices from the masses have damaged their movement. –Joel Kotkin, The Daily Beast, 22 July 2017

Gore’s new health warning: ‘Every organ system can be affected by climate change’

In Al Gore’s new book, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power”, the former Vice President features a professor of pediatrics warning that global warming is impacting our health.

“Every organ system can be affected by climate change. When I say that, I get goosebumps,” says Pediatrician Susan Pacheco, a professor of pediatrics at University of Texas McGovern Medical School, in Gore’s new book.

Gore’s book features Pacheco and her climate change health warnings and touts the fact that the professor was inspired to get involved in climate activism after seeing his original film. The book is a companion to Gore’s new film being released this month, a sequel to his 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Tesla Battery, Subsidy and Sustainability Fantasies

The first justification was that internal combustion engines polluted too much. But emissions steadily declined, and today’s cars emit about 3% of what their predecessors did. Then it was oil imports: electric vehicles (EVs) would reduce foreign dependency and balance of trade deficits. Bountiful oil and natural gas supplies from America’s hydraulic fracturing revolution finally eliminated that as an argument.

Al Gore Can’t Save the Global Warming Cult

Following Donald Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, Al Gore is releasing an update of his 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth. It’s called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, in which no doubt we will hear the same apocalyptic hysteria of its predecessor, and the same lurid predictions that will never come true.

The difference between the 2006 Academy Award winner and the updated version is that now volumes of counter-evidence and exposure of the manipulation of climate data make it obvious that catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a progressive cult-belief and alternative energy boondoggle, not real science.

Trump’s Interior Dept Begins Rolling Back Obama-Era Fracking Regs

The Department of the Interior (DOI) is proposing a complete repeal of a 2015 Obama-era rule governing hydraulic fracturing on federal and Indian lands, according to an agency plan set to be published Tuesday in the Federal Register.

If repealed, state and tribal governments would be responsible for enforcing fracking regulations on those lands, instead of the DOI’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Don’t Believe the Hysteria Over Carbon Dioxide

The way Americans perceive climate change is too often determined by their hearing just one side of the story.

The American people should be made aware of both the negative and positive impacts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Without the whole story, how can we expect an objective evaluation of the issues involving climate change?

While it is indisputable that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is gradually increasing, this does not automatically justify all of the alarmists’ claims.
